Eat cheap: Semi homemade onion soup

12 Sep

So I know it’s summer time and most people don’t think to make hot soup on a hot summer day but I was totally craving soup the other day so I went ahead and made my favorite onion soup. It’s super easy to make, doesn’t take too much time and being semi-homemade it’s really fool proof.

Ingredients:

– 1 Medium sized onion chopped (I used several small onions)

– 1 clove garlic, minced

– Unsalted butter

– Onion salt

– Fresh ground pepper, to taste

– Can onion soup

– Water

I start by chopping up the onions. Depending on how much soup you are making you can adjust quantities, but I was just making enough for 2 people and mabye a little left over. Ok, so onions chopped and into a pan to be sauteed over medium heat with a little butter. Add minced garlic once onions have started to cook and this time I also added some chopped mushrooms because I had them in the fridge and figured why not! I also added a pinch of onion salt and fresh ground pepper. Once everything had cooked down I added a can of onion soup and 2 cans of water.

I brought it up to a boil and then simmered it on low for about 5 minutes. Then I shredded some motzarella cheese and added it to my soup before eating.  Such a super easy and quick recipe that I love on a nice cold winter day, or in the middle of the summer so long as I have the A/C on and can pretend it’s cold outside! =)
